    Examining Relations Between Public Participationand Public Expenditure: Opinions from English and French Users on Environmental Issues in the English Channel2019In: Sustainability, ISSN 2071-1050, E-ISSN 2071-1050, Vol. 11, no 8, article id 2230Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Governments need to decide how to allocate their public expenditure, which is commonly misconstrued as simply targeting social issues. Most scientific literature highlights that the role of public spending is to enhance social welfare and fight poverty and inequality. Nonetheless, public expenditure also includes spending on environmental issues. This paper analyses relations between public participation, support for public expenditure, and pro-environmental behaviour (PEB) intentions in the English Channel region. An online public survey was developed to investigate public use of the English and French sides and the public's willingness to change their behaviour to better protect the Channel region. The survey was undertaken in the summer of 2014 and was answered by 2000 respondents. The Channel region public is willing to participate more in behaviour that involves direct changes or switches between buying/purchasing choices. In contrast, there is less willingness to engage in pro-environmental behaviour intentions that involve more active engagement activities. French respondents were slightly less inclined to change their consumer behaviour intentions, while women and older people were slightly more likely to do so. This research shows that pro-environmental behaviour could positively affect support for proposed public expenditure on environmental issues.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to examine how innovative solutions within public procurement concerning the elderly with aid decisions affect well-being and economic performance. Many decisions concerning human resources are taken without consideration for its economic effect. This means that measures to achieve improvement in this area are only seen as economic costs for organizations instead of investments since the positive effects on profitability is not calculated. To be able to predict the profitability of measures concerning human resources, there is a need to be able to measure the economic impact of these actions and then get a picture of the total costs of their implementation. In Söderhamns municipality, the distribution of food supplies to the elderly living at home in Trönö/Norrala was transferred to a private company. To measure the impact of this action empirical was data gathered from the municipality concerning current expenses and the nutritional status of the elderly. Interviews and own calculations were made in order to estimate costs that the municipality did not have in its own calculations. The results of this study showed a trend towards increased well-being of the elderly, which could mean a cost reduction in medical costs in the future. The private company that now handles the food distribution also hired more staff, which leads to increased tax revenue for the municipality. Even with these factors, the total cost of the new system is still higher than the old system. However, these factors do mean a lower total cost compared to previous cost estimates of the municipality for the new system. To get a more accurate picture of the total costs off this action more extensive calculations is required. However, this study is a step forward in how these kinds of actions can be measured financially in a way that sees more to how they affect society as a whole instead of just its affect in certain areas.
